Puck Line Pick
The Maple Leafs are holding on for dear life to their current playoff positioning, and a recent hot streak has certainly helped. Toronto is 4-1-0 over their last five contests, with two of those victories coming on the road (improving their away record to 18-14-1 overall and 18-15 against the spread). Plus, the team has already topped the Sharks once this season, although that victory came in Toronto.
Over Under Pick
The Sharks are rebounding a bit from their recent five-game losing streak, as they’ve since won two-straight contests. Can they keep it going on Tuesday? It’s unlikely. San Jose is a less-than-stellar 16-15-1 at home this season, and they’re 13-19 against the spread. It’s not like they’ve showed much resiliency as underdogs, either; they’re an ugly 14-27-3 as dogs this season.
